A thorough history should include information about past surgical history, medical history, exposures to tobacco, alcohol, environmental toxins, a history of sexually transmitted diseases, a careful menstrual history, a history of any past pregnancies, a thorough review of all organ systems, and any other relevant information. In addition, an equally thorough history of the patient’s partner should be obtained. The patient should then undergo a thorough physical exam to help investigate and find a treatment for infertility. Many times, transvaginal ultrasound will be performed at the time of the initial examination to evaluate the uterus, tubes, and ovaries. Only through an extensive evaluation of a patient’s history and a thorough physical examination can an appropriate and directed treatment plan be selected and implemented.
